Seeking Advice: Finance vs. Health Data Science - Which Master's Program Should I Choose?

Hello everyone,

I'm facing a dilemma and would really appreciate your input. I have a finance background from my undergraduate studies, and I've been fortunate to receive two offers from St. Andrews University - one for a Master's in Finance and the other for a Master's in Health Data Science.

If anyone has experience or insights to share, please help me decide which program aligns better with my interests and future prospects. Your advice means a lot!

Thank you!
